After blogging my 'How to' tutorial yesterday, on creating poseable, stamped, art-dolls I've spent the night here so I'd be ready to share another project with you bright and early today .. well ... perhaps I exaggerate a touch ...
But I am here again with another version of the doll to hopefully show how you can adapt the idea to suit whichever stamps you have in your collection.
So here she is:
She's made from paper scraps, an image taken from a fashion magazine and the Banana Frog Tropical Taste set:
I turned the frame / journaling block stamp on its side to give her a blouse with a fancy flower detail at the neck:
Her skirt is made from stamping the scrolled flowers design several times over some lightly patterned paper:
I gave her a flowery belt feature, the centre of which is the brad which pins her top to her bottom half allowing her to pivot at the waist::
It's this ability to move around, plus the quite dramatic pose fashion model I chose which really gives her her character:I added her to the front of a bright collaged greeting card and gave her a positive message to wear [ the words of which were actually cut from a car advert!]:
Even though I made this card for an adult friend of mine, I've only lightly fixed the doll in place with a foam pad, so she can still be taken off and 'played' with!
Remember to pop back to my tutorial post for the full details and for another design to get you thinking.
If you do make a doll of your own I'd love to see the styles you come up with - so do give me a nudge and I'll drop by to see .
I'm not entirely finished combining fashion magazines and my Banana Frog stamps yet. If you pop in my blog, Notes on Paper, around on the 30th Dec for the monthly Design Team Blog Hop, then you can see even more experiments ... this time they're of a more art-journally style.
OK then, I'll see you on the other side of Christmas! Have a wonderful timne, whatever you're doing.
